Exercise is a pleasurable activity for both would-be athletes and recovering pyromaniacs desperate enough to settle for burning calories. Fuel fitness regimens with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get five drop-in women's boot-camp classes and a body assessment at Bootique Fitness (a $175 value). This Groupon is redeemable for boot camps held at the Marina, Mission Bay Park, Hillcrest/Balboa Park, La Jolla, or Scripps Ranch locations.
Head trainer Jaylin Allen leads women in width whittling toward their fitness goals through boot-camp workouts held at a quintet of outdoor locations six days a week. Each 45-minute morning or evening class targets problem spots typical to ladies with an ever-changing series of exercises to avoid overstressing the joints or boring muscles with predictable plot twists. Trainers reach out with individualized attention to make sure each fettle seeker can cleanly execute moves such as lunges, squats, planks, and jumps. In a single session, campers burn up to 800 calories, roughly equivalent to two small meals or a ball pit full of rice cakes.
Along with five sweat-inducing sessions, Bootique Fitness will also diagnose each participant with a pre-fitness body assessment. Recording statistics such as measurements, body-fat percentage, and weight will help health hunters track their success or concretely outline goals to fit back into favorite high-school mascot costumes.
Jaylin Allen may be a certified member of the National Academy of Sports Medicine and a personal trainer with 12 years of experience, but the last thing she wants is for her resumé to intimidate clients. She and her trainers strive to make their small-group Bootique Fitness camps fun and friendly, fostering a team spirit while tailoring exercises to the fitness level of each individual. To maximize results, they avoid boring, repetitive exercise, which has a tendency to strain joints and turn the mind into crusty oatmeal. Instead, they revise their regimen daily, blending functional movement training into calisthenics and body-weight resistance exercises.
